Village of Love, Nathaniel Mayer & The Fabulous Twilights (1962) Village of Love was Nathaniel “Nate Dog” Mayer‘s first hit, recorded when he was 18. After his six year stint with Fortune Records, his whereabouts were often unknown as he would disappear into the East Detroit ghettos, sometimes for years. Apparently he’d had a rough time, too – in 2009 he recorded The Puddle.
